Just started MM - the group has just entered the Pentheru estate grounds. No deaths thus far, but the rogue is pretty good at getting poisoned.

We have a monk that has been dubbed Swarm Finder.

Monk: "I'm gonna just open this door."
Party (in chorus): "Noooooooooooo!"
GM (me): "As you open the door..."

Pretty well sums it up. However, as the party has progressed into Book 2...

The group is now level 5, and Gromnok ("Gronk"), Gabriel, Arsin, and Shikada have advanced as expected - all still single classed and doing what one would generally think. Mia, on the other hand has realized that alchemist is her true calling. She retrained her alley witch (I remembered it incorrectly as "urban" in my prior post) level and all alchemist levels into Wild Experimenter and Grenadier alchemist archetypes. So, yeah, attach the bomb to the arrow, only in this case most of the time it's creating a localized primal magic event. I mention this because Shikada is still spectacular at getting poisoned, and she has taken both minor and major magic rogue talents. Which leads to the last wild bomb Mia detonated...which summoned 2 huge and 1 large giant centipedes that ignore everyone except spellcasters and anyone with spell-like abilities. Of course, the party was fighting 6 giant locusts at the time, so that meant the centipedes immediately went for the closest "spellcasters". Shikada did what she does best, which is get repeatedly poisoned by them.

Hehe, PCs are funny sometimes.

We've re-organized a few times losing the 3 teens to their own game (including swarm-finder), settling on 4 adults and one's 11-year old son (playing the meatshield). Now we have:

Human ranger (infiltrator) 7/fighter 4
Human bard (archaeologist) 10/slayer 1
Aasimar transmuter 10/bard 1
Aasimar inquisitor 7/slayer (sanctified) 4
Aasimar unchained rogue 11

The bard, transmuter, and inquisitor are very experienced, and the fighter is a first-timer (he does well, however). It is difficult to adjust for this party, though they did have a hard time with the last big battle before the 3rd part of book 4. It gets hard in a hurry from here on out.


Human Warpriest of Pharasma
Aasimar Cleric of Pharasma
Half-Elf Summoner
Human Barbarian / Fighter (lore Warden)
Tiefling Arcanist
Tiefling Alchemist

Currently at lvl 9 doing Shifting Sands.

I'm very new to GMing but everyone seems to be having fun, and that is surely the point?

Early on we also had a half-orc Barbarian who reincarnated as the buffest sprite I've ever seen, but the player left.

A while back we acquired Xorcon, a grippli witch. Nearing the end of Empty Graves and looking forward to Shifting Sands

We just started last week and they had a difficult time with the traps. No one died, but the Sorcerer came close. They almost completely split up the party at the first T in the tomb. Fun times. I really like the traps.

8 person party, I think they HAVE to split up in some of those small rooms :)

how did you beef up the encounters/traps?

I usually just add a creature or two where needed. For some things, like the Aghash Div, they had so much trouble with it there was no need to beef it up. If a creature has good tactics I can hold off an 8 person party pretty easily. That and they have been on a horrible rolling binge. They have split up and caused themselves some trouble a few time. Dividing the party is always fun for me. I rarely have all 8 there at the same time though.


The Serpent Hunters, now having finished the Tomb of Akhentepi

Most are natives of Osirion:
Sallah, paladin of Pharasma (undead scourge), human male
Hadiya min-Albadhu, cleric of Pharasma, half-orc female
Khismia, shaman, human female- a street orphan of Wati
Jes, bard (dervish dancer), elven female
Novid Morradi, fighter, human male

Two are from abroad,
Amestri, bard (archaeologist), Keleshite female
Ostog Snorrison, wizard (admixture-evoker), Ulfen male


1 person marked this as a favorite.

and joining soon: Kitai the Kitsune Slayer

(Xorcon moved to some place called "London")

Apparently all reincarnations in this particular game will result in fey

We started with 8. The hard part is the small rooms in many of the dungeons/tombs/etc. Hero Lab makes CR adjustment a breeze.

We just began The Mummy's Mask last week after the conclusion of The Reign of Winter. It felt odd to go from 18th level characters back to 1st level again, but it happens every 4 to 6 months so I should be used to it.

Here is our party, Special Wati Archaeology Team, aka S.W.A.T..

Strom - Human paladin of Cheliax who rejected his family heritage of worshiping Asmodeus to follow the Dawnstar, Sarenrae.

Yaammu - Half-orc inquisitor of Wadjet who seeks to clear the taint on his ancestral family's good name and to restore his birthright as a high priest to the mighty pharaohs of Osirian.

Kattara - Half-orc sorceress and older sister of Yaammu with a strong connection to the water Djinni known as Marids with the ability to bend and manipulate water even in the arid deserts of Osirian.

Zaki el-Sattar, aka Cringe - Human cleric who is the son of a wealthy land-owner who has trained with the warrior priests of Thoth and has learned to not fear death and the undead.

Dr. Henry Gnome, Jr. aka Indiana Gnome - Gnome gunslinger who has come to Osirian in general and Wati in particular to seek the ancient mysteries and lost relics of a bygone civilization and to raid the tombs of the dead in search of the unknown.

Hopefully, they will survive to see the quest to it's end...

How on earth are you finishing an entire AP in 4-6 months?

6:00 to Midnight every Friday night, not too hard!

We play that much, too. Probably 30 sessions into MM, many of which are 8-9 hours in duration. Just got to the last part of book 4 (which is pretty big). Same with GS, though we only play 4 or 5 hours at a time.


My players are currently level 2, exploring the House of Pentheru, and are currently made up of:

* Imdar Ivibuk, female human (vudran) Paladin (Undead Scourge) of Osiris, a former Cleric of Pharasma who is hoping that exploring the Necropolis will help her figure out how she died and why she came back
* Sedjawet, female human (garundi) Oracle (Occult/Haunted), who's just happy to have friends and feels subconsciously pulled to the Necropolis by the spirits that surround her
* Toffi, female catfolk Summoner, who is in the country for treasure and power, and her eidolon Powerslave
* Suhu, agender tiefling (brastbrood) Twilight Sage Arcanist who's looking to study undead so xe can go back to Geb and gain some prestige there
* Olivia Olsen, female human (?) Hedge Witch from the Mwangi Expanse who is was killed in Kho and woke up in Rarne, and had a vision of something Bad happening in Wati
* Bognor Regis, male half-orc Druid, who was addled by the sun and sometimes vanishes but seems keen to make friends and destroy undead abominations

Ech, my own group is only in book 3 and about halfway through after playing for maybe a year.

But my group only plays once a week for about 3-4 hours, play online and through text.

Speaking of!

Typh Lante - Human Sorcerer (Solar Blood). Arcane expert, curious but also the most level headed of the group. Specializes in blowing stuff up/putting it on fire. Is along for the ride but also looking for his dead beat dad that almost killed him along with struggling with the burden of his family/powers.

Hemetre - Human Cleric (Blossoming Light Archetype). History and Religion buff, party healer and face. She's the one that holds the Mask currently and is the one that kinda leads the party when talking with new people/church officials. Has a huge family that each worship an Orisian god of old and hopes to bring them back to a more accepted state. Dislikes grave robbers stealing her culture which is why she signed up, to help protect those and stop people from misusing the past.

Dorne - Half Orc Fighter (Drill Sargent). The muscle of the group and the most cynic/blunt. Doesn't care for a lot of the rules and run around, prefers to just have the problem in sword range. He's not "Smash" personality but he realizes what he's good at and prefers to deal with that rather than all the 'pageantry' when it comes to social interaction. He came to find out lost fighting styles after his family passed down myths and legends about how one of their ancestors was trained in these sandy lands.

Harwa Glyphkeeper - Dwarf Kineticist (Psammokinetic). Pahmet dwarf who grew up to serve the Pharoah as a scout, messenger, and problem solver. Not directly but she works for a group that's semi "CIA" for him. She showed up during the uprising of the undead in Wati(Book 2) and has been on the team sense. Stoic in her duties but has a cheerful side that is starting to come out, she serves the team as ranged scout with some local knowledge checks and semi history buff. Follows the group due to her new orders but also her own sense of doing what's right.
